Abstract Corrugated tubes are one among the different types of energy absorbers being used for the protection of passengers during impact /crash events of vehicles. Present work is primarily focused to analyze the effect of the variations of wavelength and amplitude of corrugation along the length of the tube on the crashworthiness of the tube. The circumferential corrugations in the tubes are graded by varying two parameters - wavelength and amplitude individually as well as simultaneously using different sinusoidal corrugation functions. The dynamic impact analysis has been carried out using LS-DYNA FEM code using shell elements for meshing and Magnesium alloy AZ31 as material. Energy absorbed, initial peak force, mean force and stroke length are the parameters used in this comparative study. It is observed that the initial reaction forces as well as the ratio of the mean reaction force to peak load changes with the grading of corrugation.

Abstract A safe vehicle is able to save lives even during worst collision scenario. Today’s vehicles have many safety systems both active and passive to save occupants. Improving the safety of pedestrian is now concentrated upon by the design engineers. Front bumper is the first member coming in contact during a frontal collision with a pedestrian. A safe bumper design helps in reducing pedestrian fatality. The requirements for pedestrian safety are not compatible with no component damage at 5 KMPH rule by the insurance agencies. This paper aims to reduce the gap in incompatibility of front bumper to meet the various requirements by changing the role of crash bars. From the point of view of pedestrians a bull bar/ crash bar is not a safety device, but it can be made into an independent component designed specifically to protect the pedestrians.

Abstract In today’s fast moving vehicle scenario, road safety is of utmost importance. Many people have lost their lives while travelling, due to a road accident. So we should mitigate such accidents if we wish to travel safely. To cater this cause, we propose an adaptive steering controlled headlight setup. The system can be adopted in any type of four wheel vehicles/trucks or trailers etc. without being an economic burden on the end user. The notion of steering controlled headlight is not new, but its adaptability according to the steering turning angle is its novel part. A lot of companies have developed technologies that incorporate turn able headlight to better illuminate the path, but these technologies are quite expensive and continue to be distant from the majority of car owners. So we felt the need of developing a mechanism that incorporates few simple components like gears, linkages etc. and can be readily fitted onto any steering column without much of a design variations.

Abstract In laboratory car crash tests, Anthropomorphic Test Devices (ATD) are equipped with piezoresistive and resistive sensors for occupant injury assessment. Accelerometers are inertial transducers that convert acceleration into electrical output which can be easily recorded by a Data Acquisition System (DAS). For an accelerometer, this electrical output mainly depends upon subjected acceleration, sensitivity of the accelerometer, excitation voltage and gain provided. Before use in testing, accelerometers are calibrated at a standard excitation (manufacturer decided) voltage to determine characteristics like Sensitivity, Sensitivity per unit excitation voltage, Zero Measurand Output (ZMO), Transverse Sensitivity etc. It is observed that these characteristics are highly dependent on the excitation voltage. In testing, due to limitations of DAS and/or other unwanted noise in the excitation voltage, these accelerometers are sometimes used at a different excitation voltage.

Primary function of the inverter in an Electric or Hybrid Electric vehicle (EV/HEV) is to generate required AC voltage from high voltage battery to drive Electrical machine (EM). Being part of power-train of the vehicle, inverters (or hybrid control units (HCU)) are safety related electronic control units (ECU) due to the severity of the accidents/incidents that could result if the ECU is not functional as intended. Therefore it is necessary to develop the inverter in accordance with applicable safety standards. The standard ISO 26262 in particular addresses the complete development cycle of safety related automotive products. OEMs now mandate the strict adherence to ISO26262 standard for such ECUs. This paper describes how safety principles are realized in the hardware modules of inverter, which are responsible for the functional safety adherence.

Abstract New generation automobiles are equipped with power windows which eases the passenger’s effort in moving the vehicle windows up and down. Many of them are stuffed with advanced features like automatic up/down option for ensuring functionality with a single press of the switch. Even though it adds comfort to driver & passenger, inadvertent use of power window can be fatal if a person’s body part gets trapped inside. An effective solution for this problem is anti-pinch mechanism, which releases the object safely just when it gets trapped. It detects the object trapped and immediately moves the window down so that trapped object will get released easily. The anti-pinch algorithm used in this project is based on the “Method of Monitoring Movable Element”, method monitor traveling distance of a power window pane. In order to achieve this different from conventional techniques we are using Ultrasonic sensor.

Abstract The biggest challenge in vehicle BIW design today is to make a light, cost effective and energy absorbing structure. With the increasing competition as well as increasing customer awareness, today’s vehicle has to satisfy several aesthetic and functional requirements besides the mandatory regulatory requirements. While working on global platform, it is challenging to comply with both pedestrian protection and low speed bumper impact (ECE-R42) and at the same time meeting the styling intent of reducing the front overhang. Pedestrian lower leg compliance demands space between bumper member and bumper, a condition that reduces the space available for energy absorption during low speed impact (ECE-R42). Therefore, reduction in front overhang poses a problem in meeting both the requirements with limited space.

Abstract Front under run protection device (FUPD) is a regulatory requirement for passive safety of N2 & N3 category vehicle. This device gives effective protection for small vehicles (M1 or N1 category) against under running of big vehicles (N2 & N3 category) in the event of a frontal collision. FUPD generally consists of the front under run protector (FUP) and its mounting structure. As the compliance load target for N3 category is high, the FUP required achieving regulation target need to have high rigidity. This increases its size and hence the weight, Increase in weight has impact on payload and cost. To curtail the weight of FUP, in general Aluminum with higher strength is in use, but use of Aluminum increases the cost. So the main challenge in FUPD design is to achieve the design with optimal system weight & cost.
